• Grace Crawford, 8, came fifth at the US Kids Golf World Champs
• Was the North Berwick youngster's second time at the event
• Her achievements have been praised by staff at Loretto school


In Grace Crawford, are we seeing the next future star of Scottish Golf?

Well, the eight-year-old Loretto student secured fifth place in the US Kids Golf World Championship at the weekend, in an event which more than 1,000 youngsters took part in.

Held at 2014 US Open venue Pinehurst, Grace shot two level par rounds and a final round of three-over-par to finish inside the top five in the Girls 8 category.

And the North Berwick youngster’s achievements at the North Carolina resort are all the more impressive, considering the international field of 65 players which competed in her category, while she also had to play in temperatures of 43 degrees – almost treble of what it’s been like over here for the majority of the Scottish summer!

But it’s not the first time Grace Crawford has competed in the US Kids Golf World Championship – recognised as the largest and most prestigious event in the world for aspiring golfers aged between six and 12 – as last year she achieved sixth place in the Girls 7 and under category.

And naturally, everyone at Loretto was hugely proud of Grace’s achievements in the US.
"To get that final position is an incredible achievement" - Jonathan Hewat

Director of external affairs at Loretto, Jonathan Hewat, said: “Grace did so well to come in fifth place and we are all absolutely delighted for her. What an achievement to have done so well in such a big tournament.

“Just to have been selected to take part in the tournament is a feather in anyone’s cap, but to get that final position is an incredible achievement. We are all very proud here.”
